Battle in The Bubble Goes Off HUGE!!!

The Battle in The Bubble was fantastic.  I know, it’s immodest to say how amazing it was, but we at the Spot and the Professional Climbers International are so proud of the setting crew, the climbers, the Sender guys, the AV team, the lighting guys, Ian the skydiver, the volunteers, the vendor village participants, the kayak and paddle board demonstrators, the APEX parkour guys, the Vail Valley Association, Red Bull, Wahoos, Avery, Avid 4 Adventure, Mix 1, Gibbon Slacklines, everyone who tried David Garcia’s ATG challenge, and the staff from the Spot for taking many unlikely variables (and lots of doubters) and putting together a spectacular show.  Thank you everyone for your hard work to make this the best climbing event Boulder has ever seen.

We’d like to thank all our sponsors, but since this is the setting blog I’m going to focus on the setting-related sponsors here.

Thank you Climb-It, for all the awesome holds in such striking colors!

Thank you ASANA, for all the neck-saving crashpads!

Thank you to Ivo, Travis, and the rest of the crew from Walltopia, for building these spectacular walls.  We’re looking forward to getting them up in the Spot!!!

Asana pads, Walltopia walls, Climb-it holds. And Brazilian strongman Felipe Camargo forerunning Men's Final 1.

Finally, we’d like to thank all the spectators for showing up, enjoying the festival, and hanging out through the cold (but luckily dry!) weather to watch the climbers battle it out.  It was an amazing evening, and it could never have happened without the support and hard work of so many, but if you hadn’t come to watch it would have all been for nought.  We hope you all had an excellent time and were psyched out of your minds when Angie and Alex and Daniel and Julian battled it out on the final problems.

This picture of Alex Puccio high up on Women's 4 isn't particularly special, until you notice Julian Bautista taking flight in the background. Thanks Asana, for saving his butt.

There’s so much to write about this comp, and so many pictures to share, so stay tuned for pictures and video in the coming days.  I’ll do a full write-up as well.  Until then, here are results:
